Depression – What You Need to Know
Depression is a mental health condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It can have a serious impact on your life, including work, relationships, and physical health. It can also cause you to have thoughts of suicide, so it’s important to get treatment if you think you might be depressed.
The Cause of Depression
There’s no single cause of depression, but it can be triggered by certain things that happen in your life. These can be a major change in your life, such as losing your job or becoming ill, or by a stressful event like a bereavement or a relationship breakup.
How Depression Is Diagnosed
A doctor can make a diagnosis of depression if you have five or more symptoms that last at least two weeks, according to the “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders” (DSM-5). Your doctor may also check your mental health by asking about how you feel, noticing any patterns in your behavior and thinking, and reviewing your family history.
Your doctor will do a physical exam and order lab tests and bloodwork to look for any other medical conditions that might be causing your symptoms. They will also ask you about how you feel and how you interact with others, and will ask you to fill out a questionnaire.
Medication for Depression
Antidepressants can help improve depression, but they often take a while to work. Some medicines can make other conditions better or worse, so talk to your doctor about any side effects you might experience. You might have to take the medication for several months before it starts working, but you’ll want to continue taking it for at least four to nine months afterward to prevent relapses.
Triggers for Depression
There are many different triggers that can set off symptoms of depression, such as a loss of a loved one, a new job, an illness, or money problems. You can also have depression if you take certain medications or if you have a family history of the disorder.
The Brain’s Role in Depression
While there are many theories about why some people have depression, scientists know that it is related to chemicals and hormones in the brain. These chemicals are called neurotransmitters, and they can affect how you feel.
These can be influenced by your genes, as well as other factors, such as the way you handle stress. You’re more likely to have depression if you have certain personality traits, such as low self-esteem or being overly critical.
Lifestyle changes can help you control your stress and boost your resilience. For example, exercise and meditation can help you cope with your emotions in a healthier way. Getting enough sleep and eating well can also reduce your risk of depression.
Psychotherapy is another treatment option. This can involve one-to-one therapy or group sessions with a trained therapist.
Your doctor will decide on the right treatment based on your symptoms and the type of depression you have. You might need a combination of medicines, lifestyle changes and talking therapies.
